Nice park, typical of a well run State Park - just a 2 or 3 minute walk to the uncrowded ocean beach via trails & boardwalks. Lots of trees - many sites have some shade. Most sites are on the outside of large loops with bathhouses in the center of loop. That leaves plenty of room behind you, but the WiFi located at the bathhouses doesn't seem to reach all sites. If WiFi is important, get a site close to a bathhouse. My cell phone hot spot worked OK via AT&T. The bathhouses could be better. No paper towels or hot air hand dryer, and it takes a minute or two for the hot water to reach the showers. Showers are a bit cramped, and have some cracked & broken tiles, but are OK even if it's about time for an update. Camp store looked fairly well-stocked, and also serves as the check-in site. We camped at Huntington Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

This is the third time we have stayed at this park, and we just love it. There campsites are easy to back in to. The campground is kept very clean. The beach is absolutely gorgeous, and they allow dogs on the beach. There is a nice fresh water pond, and a nice salt water marsh for viewing animals (including alligators) and birds. The Atalaya house is very interesting (the audio tour is worth the extra $$). Across the street is the fabulous Brookgreen Gardens. It is a little pricey, though you can get discount cards from the park office and the tickets are good for a few days. We camped at Huntington Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Murrells Inlet calls itself the seafood capitol of South Carolina and it does have a lot of seafood restaurants. Murrells Inlet Seafood is a very good fresh seafood market. They also have prepared seafood dishes to take home and cook in your oven.

Huntington is a nice quiet wooded park w large sites. We camped at Huntington Beach State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Huntington Island SP is directly across the highway from beautiful Brookgreen Gardens (not to be missed) and next to the estate home. Both are open for tour. It is a short walk to the beach from your campsite.

Fantastic place to stay. We had a water/electric site, well shaded. We had a difficult time backing in because of tree limbs, but as soon as we were done the ranger cut down some limbs so it would be easier for the next person. WiFi was hit and miss. AT&T was very weak. But well worth it because of the 3 minute walk to beach and all of the birding and alligators. We camped at Huntington Beach State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Great viewing of egrets, storks, and other marshland birds. Even saw a bald eagle. Cool to watch the alligators. Take the birdwatching walk with the staff - they know the birds and set up the spotting scope to let you view them. The Atalaya Castle is a waste of time. Just one brick room after another.

Russells Seafood is the place to go for dinner. Has early bird special and food was excellent.

Wonderful state park with so much to do! We had a full hook up site which was semi shaded. The electric worked well. Verizon cell service was strong.

It was great walking the dogs through the trails to the beach and being able to have them with us all day. We rode our bikes on the bike trail to Murrell's Inlet. It's about 2 miles to the seafood market and 4 miles to the Marshwalk. We camped at Huntington Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

Large CG with well paved roads, sites dirt-gravel and variably level-unlevel. Moderate number trees and lots of grass between sites which aare nicely spaced. Bathhouse we used is worn and needs upgrading, though fairly clean. No soap, paper towels or hand dryer blower. By the sandy dunes and white sand beach. Woodland walks and lots of bike paths. A good nature center by a board walk on the esturary and a long entrance causeway with sidewalks on both sides connecting to the mainland. We camped at Huntington Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

A main attraction is the vast beautiful Brookgreen Gardens just across the 17 N highway entrance to the CG. The gardens with trees, flowers, formal gardens, wildlife zoos, playgrounds, and sculptures all over the place is a real GEM, with a $13 senior entry fee. The Huntington were a rich couple who in thte 1920 boought 4 old rice plantations and eventually this became the Brookgreen gardens. Mrs. H. was a famous figure sculpturist and her and others artists works are displayed throught out the gardens and in galleries. The gardens are the reason the CG gets its $55/night CG fee.

We stayed here for 4 nights and are already planning on returning later in the spring. The sites are large, and easy to back into. The walkway to the beach was very well made, takes you through some marsh and over the dunes. Lot of birds and wild life to observe and very good trails that were well marked. We camped at Huntington Beach State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Great restaurants close by.

First....I guessed on the price, as I don't remember. OK, so this was a tough review to write. Huntington Beach is one of our favorite SC parks. The location and beach are perfect, but the infrastructure is starting to fail. While we were there, we were on two sites. The 30 amp receptacle on the 1st site started smoking and sparking when we plugged in, and had to be replaced by the ranger. Our next site was fine for a couple days, but then started cycling the power because of a loose neutral...again fixed by park staff. While we were on this site, the 30 amp pedestal on the site next to us actually caught on fire...causing damage to the occupants dogbone adapter...fortunately we got their rig unplugged in time. That was what we saw...but heard of other issues on other sites. So...a great location, beach and some very nice sites...but BEWARE THE PEDESTAL. On the plus side, they are going to begin construction on a new 50 amp loop on the south side of Atalyia in December of this year. Additionally, wifi has been expanded withn the campground and is now accessible from campsites. Without power problems, I would give this park an 8....but they need to spend some money on it. We camped at Huntington Beach State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The best part of this place is the beach and Brookgreen Gardens across the street. Our site was in deep woods which made it quite dark in the rainy weather we experienced. Many other sites are more open, which means you look at your neighbors. Staff in office were indifferent at check-in. Water and electric worked well. Verizon mifi and cell worked well. US 17 which runs by the park is a high speed, narrow, no shoulder four lane road. Could not make a left turn towing the car on departure. Too dangerous. Had to drive three miles north to the first light to make a safe U-turn to head south. Would not return. We camped at Huntington Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

This park was very well maintained, neat and clean. The beach is absolutely beautiful and not crowded at all. There are two beach access points from the campground and we used both, but the access point near site 9 is much easier to use and provides a wide walkway all the way to the beach, showers and a bike rack. The access near site 35 is more of a nature walk to the beach, beautiful and worth the visit, but we had a cart and bikes, so the first was the best for us. Our site, no.110 was nice and shaded and one of the more private sites, but we had to pull closer to the center of the site leaving less room under our canopy, because of the right side was unlevel. There is a great walkway called "alligator alley" by Atalaya that we only discovered by following a Segway tour. The natural areas and interesting and provided great photo ops. I had read reviews on how bad the mosquitoes were, but we didn't experience that at all. The ants however were horrible....they were everywhere in our camper. We travel with a 17 lb dog and she had a great time playing on the beach, which she was able to do all day if it wasn't too hot. Sites 103 - 133 are the much more wooded sites in the campground. We can't wait to come back! This place is a gem! We camped at Huntington Beach State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We had been recommended this campground and came to investigate. It is a large campground that sits about 800 feet from the beach (the beaches were beautiful!). There are 2 beach accesses from the campground. The main loop roads are paved and well maintained. The sites are gravel but hard packed, flat and well maintained. One thing we noticed was that the electrical and water services are not always in the back right side. They are on the right but some are in the middle so you can't back all the way in. Almost every site was taken when we were there but everyone was real nice, vehicles drove slowly, and there was no noise. There is a great bike path up by the entrance road (US-17) that you can take up to restaurants and a great seafood market in Murrells Inlet. There is a nature center, wildlife viewing platforms and daily nature programs June-August in the park as well. The restrooms were fairly clean, but I noticed the showers had a good deal of mildew. The restrooms are kind of dated with a lot of maintenance done and you would think with the amount of money that they make they could update them. Verizon voice and data was 3 bars. OTA TV received channels from Myrtle Beach and Charleston. A very nice campground, and we will definitely be back. We camped at Huntington Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

We lucked into this absolute gem of a park trying to escape traffic over Easter weekend. We were here 2 nights at 2 different campsites. The sites are large and well-situated. The campground is along a very wide dune system and so close to the beach you can hear the surf at night. The park is on an "island" with wetlands separating it from the mainland inhabited by many interesting birds and a few alligators. We also saw 2 Painted Buntings. There is a Nature Center, and an empty residence of the original millionaire owners that you can tour. There is a paved bike path to the nearby town of Murrells Inlet with a fabulous seafood store and a bunch of restaurants. The beach is wonderful, and (best of all) dogs are allowed on the beach. We camped at Huntington Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a wonderful campground in the state park. Sites are large with plenty of space between sites. Restroom/showers were very clean. Sites fill up quickly with locals, so make reservations early. There are plenty of hiking trails and a nice boardwalk to the beach. We would stay here again. We camped at Huntington Beach State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
